I was recently asked to help someone at work write a bio for themselves. They went from telling everyone nothing to telling everyone too much. This is the outline I gave them:
In general, the order of a bio would be the following:
- Your current position, when you started it and what you do in it
- How your career started – including education and first jobs in the industry
- Key Positions you’ve held over the years – whether you’ve worked at other companies and big name clients you’ve worked with
- One personal line (where you live, if you have a family, if you have a passionate hobby, etc)
